Tulsa Cyber Summit - College of Engineering & Natural Sciences

POSTPONED: Tulsa Cyber Summit

POSTPONED: Tulsa Cyber Summit 2020

The global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has prompted colleges and universities around the country to impose travel restrictions and enact social distancing policies with the goal of preventing further spread of the virus. Out of an abundance of caution, and with concern for the health and well-being of our campus and greater Tulsa community, we are suspending several major university hosted events beginning immediately. This includes our decision to postpone the upcoming 2020 Tulsa Cyber Summit, March 23-24.

The new date will be announced on this website in the near future. Your current registration will remain valid for the rescheduled event. Requests for attendee registration or exhibitor registration refunds may be made after the rescheduled date is announced by emailing cyberconrefund@utulsa.edu.
